I love a great taco. It took me a while to accept the lettuce taco, but I have come a long way. 

This taco is my favorite. It is our favorite “Meatless Monday” meal.

    • That sounds great. One of the triplets prefers to eat it like a bowl without the lettuce. I think it may be because my husband eats it that way. The other two eat it like a taco. Bit of warning, if your littles have not mastered the art of taco eating, gets everywhere. ;0

  1. I’m pretty sure sweet potatoes are one of the best foods on the planet – yummy and nutritious and surprisingly easy to work with. Out family loves homemade sweet potato fries. All the yum, 99% less guilt!

    • Peggy, if you have spent any time perusing my blog, you know how much we adore sweet potatoes. There are so many ways to prepare them and like you said they are so good. 😉

    • After witnessing the way disease and poor eating habits affected my aunts with an autoimmune disease, I have made it a passion, and I try to model it for my children so they can be and do better. 🙂

    • I’ve been waiting to win you over Brianna. 😉 Imagine me doing a happy dance. I served it to the triplets and D as a bowl. I chopped the lettuce and then layered the quinoa and the sweet potatoes. My are just as picky as their dad and they all eat it without complaint. I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
